Road Occupancy Permits
If you are planning to use a roadway for anything other than its intended purpose, you need to inform the municipality and may require a Road Occupancy Permit (ROP). Such uses include excavations and placement of material, fixtures or objects on public right-ofways (e.g. roads or boulevards).
The application to obtain an ROP is available under Documents at right.
